In comparison with the better known white stork the black stork has a shinny black head, neck and upperparts. His bill, surroundings of eyes and legs are distinctly red. Black storks are 90 to 105 cm in height and their wing span is between 173 and 205 cm. 

Black storks inhabit forested areas and prefer to live hidden. Their diet consists mainly of fish. They build nests high on tree tops and less often on rocks. Both male and female incubate 3 to 5 eggs and they také turns in taking care of the hatchlings.

They are found in a long belt ranging from France to the Far East; also in lesser numbers in Spain and an isolated population breeds in southern Africa - from Namibia to Mozambique and South Africa. For majority of European black storks their wintering grounds are located in Africa between the southern edge of the Sahara and the Equator. Wintering grounds of its Asian population are situated on the Indian subcontinent, in China and Southeast Asia.

Black storks are protected in the European Union by the Birds Directive, in Europe by the Convention on the Conservation of European Wildlife and Natural Habitats (Bern Convention) and globally by the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (Bonn Convention) and in its framework by the more recent African-Eurasian Migratory Water Bird Agreement (AEWA).
